The Emergency Broadband Benefit (EBB) is converting to the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP)
The FCC has announced that as of December 30, 2021 the EBB program would be coming to an end and is being replaced with the Affordable Connectivity Program.
EBB was intended to be a temporary program to ease hardships during the pandemic, and was not predicted to be long term. In an attempt to continue relief efforts, ACP is projected to last longer than EBB, however, an exact timeframe has yet to be determined.
With the Affordable Connectivity Program, those eligible and approved, are able to receive up to $30 a month credited towards your internet bill. If you are currently receiving the Emergency Broadband Benefit, you will continue to receive benefits through the transition period which runs through the end of February 2022. Beginning March 1, 2022 most of those enrolled in EBB will automatically be transferred to ACP (please visit https://www.fcc.gov/broadbandbenefit to learn more about the transition from EBB to ACP). For complete details, all who are interested are encouraged to visit https://www.fcc.gov/acp or https://acpbenefit.org/ to see if you qualify and apply for the ACP benefits.
Once you have applied and been approved for the Affordable Connectivity Program, please contact one of our representatives. You will need to provide us with your application ID and a few additional details in order for us to complete the process.
